(this may be a silly question) Does anyone know who's paying for the team to train in Rome? Is it all coming from the CSA?
If you mean is there a sugardaddy sponsoring the club as Greg Kerfoot did in years gone by, I do not believe so.
Restricted funds that come from Sports Canada (performance based) and the COC (Own The Podium). Just for the OTP they get $1.75M ($100K goes to coaching and admin) for the 11-12 cycle with probably more to come when they qualify for London
OTP Historical Quadrennial Funds -
Beijing - $1,591,000
London - $2,496,370
These are the usual funding sources for CSA, the point is there is no extraordinary source of funding as there has been in the past.
